I am sort of confused. We are a refrigeration contractor. We typically have our hands into the HVAC/Lighting control systems and the refrigeration systems as we have the knowledge to coordinate to the electrical contractor as to how we want the systems done from their end. Almost always there is this ***** about who's work is who's. Not one electricican I have ever met has a clue as to controls. So we basically tell them how and what to do and we terminate.
We bid as the energy management and as the refrigeration. There seems to be mass confusion as to whom must do what work when it comes to controls. We do canned stuff, nothing like BMS in buildings where things are more open. Typically our control systems are the refrigeration control, that also has light commercial hvac control capability.
Licensing in Michigan is not specific. As far as I have interpreted. I have done the whole thing, I also have been the guy standing over the electrician, and I also have been banned from the work since the work is supposedly the electricians. I want to know how to find out the exact who's work is who's. The info may be usefull to take into the office and so we have an idea on what we do from here on these systems.
I have been in class for the last two weeks, away from home, to obatain certification on 2 different control systems that we do. The systems require it. Now. If the sparky has jurisdiction, how the heck can he be doing it with out having knowledge.
Now. Does anyone know the specific laws as it pertains to MI, what I can and can not touch.
